This comes on the heels of the news this past weekend that Lance Jones is joining the Purdue Boilermakers.

Domask and Jones played four seasons under Bryan Mullins at SIU and have one year of eligibility remaining at their new schools.

Domask is one of only two Salukis to have at least 16-hundred points, 500 rebounds and 300 assists in their careers. Domask is still exploring the NBA Draft process as well.

Jones is one of the top 3-point shooters in school history, fifth all-time in steals and the 12th leading scorer at more than 15-hundred career points.
